Leaf Leather goes online! June 13 2013

Leaf Leather is very excited to be opening an online shop, which will enable those who've not yet discovered the magical town of Chagford, to find out why our grandparents and great grandparents treasured their beautifully crafted leather products of the 1930's and beyond. Our beautiful handmade leather products are all made in our leather studio in our retail shop, 'artisan' in Chagford, Devon in the Dartmoor National Park. We use only the best quality veg tan leathers, including the unique Oak Bark Tan leather from J&FJ Baker's in Colyton, which is the last remaining oak bark tannery in England. The hides are tanned for an everage of 15 months to produce a hide which looks and smells wonderful and will age beautifully.

Our online leather shop may tempt you to visit 'artisan', our retail shop at 68 The Square, Chagford, where you can find the best quality locally made goods in leather, wood, silver, felt, forged iron and clay, and discover some wonderful local painters. Our focus is on functional items as we believe using beautiful objects in our everyday lives, is one of life's great pleasures.

Our leather studio produces hand stitched belts, dog leads, dog collars, bags, phone holders and document cases. We also offer a bespoke service for those looking for something very particular.
